Liver and Onions Recipe
An Old Time Country Favorite



This liver and onions recipe was my grandpa's favorite.  For us younger folks, you don't see this being served much at dinner tables anymore. So when you do see liver and onions it's a rare treat.  Although liver is not a dish I enjoy eating, I do prepare this meal a few times per year at the request of my immediate family members. 

I do get some satisfaction out of seeing my family eating the dish and then thanking for for a very tasty meal. Here is the liver recipe for your enjoyment.
